Amazing Courses
Josh and Irfan founded this company because they saw there was a lack of authentic educational courses and masterminds being taught by genuine, successful investors. Both founders had enjoyed coaching multiple successful individuals in the past prior to creating the company, and found that is where their excitement lies.

I was brand new, and wanted to learn how to be a Real Estate Investor. I linked up with Direct Investor Academy, and since then I have done over 20 wholesale deals and have purchase 3 Investment Properties for myself.

Shania K.

I work in finance, but had no idea where to start when it came to buying rental properties. What I learned at Direct Investor Academy helped me to buy my first 2 rental properties.

Matt J.

I owned a few rentals, but was having trouble scaling. I took the Advanced Mastermind course, and it completely changed everything. I am now up to 94 rental units!
